I can't even imagine what it would take to be rejected by the devil. It's a good thing we have Rob Zombie to put it into images for us. When I agreed to see the first Rob Zombie movie House of 1000 Corpses
in theatres, I wasn't sure what to expect. I have never been a big horror fan, I've seen my share of Freddy
Flicks. Most of these "scary movies" I find to be humorous. The supernatural never really made me feel the sense of fear, I know that ghouls and goblins aren't real and can't hurt me. The horror films that do produce the goosebumps on my arm and cause the hair on the back of my neck to stand are the ones that portrait real people, psychotic and estranged from the real world, living in the dark, preying on the innocent. Zombies
, Clawed beasts
are all great characters but almost always get slayed in the end and everyone is happy. If you want to scare the bejesus out of me, you're going to have to make me think this could happen to me.
I thought I had seen the most gruesome imagery that could be shown in a movie theatre, but I guess Mr. Zombie still has the creativity and insight to freak us out. The House of 1000 Corpses
poster features the house of torment, occupied by the family from hell. The advance style
poster for Devils Rejects gives us a look at the main characters, seemingly based on the family that terrorized the innocent. The regular style
poster is reminiscent of the Saw posters, dead limbs and a blood stained floor. I am lead to believe that there might be yet another style to come out.
